Machine Shop

We offer a full service machine shop to include shaft refurbishment and fabrication up to 12 inches, rudder refurbishment and fabrication, bearing, strut and stern tubes, engine swings, engine and gearbox alignments, etc.

Maintenance Planning

Downtime is costly. Unscheduled downtime is exponentially more costly. Many successful organizations have embraced the concept of “Planned Maintenance” in one form or another.

Regulatory Compliance

We offer a full array of survey services to include Subchapter M, ISM, Maintenance, USCG and Class surveys. Our surveyors have vast experience and are qualified/certified in many different areas. We are also qualified to perform internal and external audits related to Sub M requirements. We foster and maintain a positive relationship with the USCG and the TPO’s such that Conley Marine can liaise on behalf of our clients on all levels to resolve any issues.

About us

Conley Marine Services

Where our customers’ safety and vessel availability matter.

Conley Marine Services was formed in 2016 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Conley & Associates, Inc. for the purpose of providing regulatory compliance services to the tug and barge industry. We have helped many companies achieve not only Subchapter M compliance, but also compliance with other Subchapters including I, L and T. Whether your boats are working or have been stacked and need recertification, full surveys or on-going internal and external audits – chances are Conley Marine has diligent, qualified personnel who can help.

In September of 2018, Conley Marine Services acquired the former Kody Marine shipyard located approximately 1,000 feet inside the Harvey Locks on the Harvey Canal. Conley Marine’s shipyard features a full machine shop, an 800T dry dock, and a bulkhead for topside work. Our qualified staff, well-versed in regulatory compliance will get your boat back to work quickly, with minimal downtime and expense.

A few things we’re great at

We know that a boat not in operation cannot make money.
Our goal is to get your boat underway quickly with quality service. 

Shipyard Services

We know that shipyard visits are costly, not only in the work being performed but the time off contract. By working together as a team, we can have your boat underway quicker and at a higher quality than our competitors.

Mobile Repair

To further reduce costly down time, Conley Marine is building our mobile repair capability by offering a mobile repair team for services such as electrical, plumbing, HVAC, engine and gearbox alignments, etc.

Regulatory Compliance

Conley Marine started business in regulatory compliance. Now with shipyard and mobile repair, we can combine the disciplines to ensure that all work is performed to regulatory requirements.

Project Management

As part of Conley’s long history in Department of Defense contracting and the operation of a shipyard, we know and understand the importance of project management. We offer external project management services.

The secret of success

Understanding our customers challenges and developing solutions to increase operational availability and reduce cost.

Maintenance Planning

Unscheduled maintenance is costly. Maintenance planning helps to schedule maintenance when it is convenient for you, not when the boat has a failure while under contract at an inconvenient time.

Maintenance Management

A maintenance plan is all well and good, but without quality management, the plan will inevitably fail. Conley Marine has many years of experience with Department of Defense and Maritime maintenance management and planning

Regulatory Assistance

Regulatory non-compliance is costly, not only in fines but in time tied to shore. Conley Marine Services has regulatory experts to assist you in your regulatory needs.

Maintenance & Repair

All of the maintenance management, maintenance planning and regulatory assistance means very little without quality maintenance and repair services. We combine all of these qualities in our M&R services to ensure the best quality and highest operational availability.
